OMG, that's gorgeous. Do you have any detail shots? (especially of the bolster area, which I'm obsessed with)

You can see the cladding line in the pic near the edge, so yes, they are clad.

That's what I thought. Just didn't read anything about that in the description. Not that it really matters. Is that called the "shinogi" line?

the "Shinogi" line only exists on single bevels.

@Nola - no it's just the natural line where the cladding gives way to exposing the core steel. This is based on the grind of the knife near the edge. The Shinogi line is usually marked as the delineation where the flatter blade face gives way to the primary bevel grind which then goes down to the edge. This primary bevel is sometime referred to as the blade road. It's really easy to see on Kurouchi knives and on single bevel knives. Shinogi is traditionally a single bevel knife term, but many also apply it to double bevel knives as I stated above.

O crap, I did not need one. But I could not resist. I got the 210 mm.

Now I am going to have to sell a knife or give it to a friend. Can't have to many knives in the house.
